Wordless Wednesday - In Memoriam

This Not-So-Wordless Wednesday is in memoriam of Bluesy, my pint-sized blue-eyed Siamese kitty with a big meow and lots of unconditional love. She would wake me up every morning meowing for me and then spend 20 minutes snuggling. This week she died suddenly and tragically and far too soon. She was a very sweet friend to me for many years and I miss her so much.

Sometimes, adulthood is about tough decisions. In the span of one hour I found my cat paralyzed on my bathroom floor, took her to the emergency vet, and then my bf and I had to make the very tough decision to end her life. She had undetected heart disease (it shows no symptoms sometimes) and had a blood clot in her aorta which paralyzed her. She was also in great pain. We wished we had more time with her, but it was the best choice for her. She died in my bf's arms with me patting her head and whispering to her in a secret language that can only be known to a girl and her dearest kitty friend.


  1. Again, really really sorry this happened. Reading this reminded me of when the first cat I had (we got him when I was 3) died when I was a Sophomore in high school.

  2. Oh Mara, I am so sorry to hear about Bluesy. I can hear the love in your heart and know that Bluesy was one lucky kitty to have you as her mommy and vice-versa. I have lost several pets and it is just like losing a family member. Bluesy is now at Rainbow Bridge and is happy and free of pain! Hugs to you!

  3. I'm so sorry Marz for this sudden loss of such a sweet and loving kitty:( Hang in there... you are in my thoughts and prayers.


  4. I am so sorry for your loss of Bluesy. Your love and friendship will stay with both of you forever. Hugs.

  5. How I feel your pain. My own Siamese (although 15) is in hospice care right now. It breaks me heart to think what life will be like without all of his bullying.

    The other animals demands just don't seem to work their way into my heart like Lance Flame's.

    Just keep those memories close and remember that God simply missed Bluesy just as you are missing her now :-)
